i'm currently 18 weeks pregnant with my second. you can see what i'm currently on in my signature.
so far i'm feeling GREAT! even better than pre-preg which was still pretty good. but many women do have problems during pregnancy. it doesn't seem like there is any way of knowing ahead of time which group you will be.
as far as drug safety, check with your GI as well as your OB and even your pharmacist.
i know there are other ladies who are here who may respond, but this topic has come up a lot lately so you can try a search at the top of the forum page and see what else you find (though the search never really works well for me).
this is my first pregnancy with UC so i've never had to do pregnancy and meds before this. it was challenging to accept for me but i'm happy with my decision.
hope you are doing well, and good luck trying to conceive if you head down that road!
